Visiting Educator Program

Advertising the Visiting Educator Program in the California Department of Education..

The Visiting Educator Program is a unique employment exchange program requiring cooperation among individuals working in public education and the California Department of Education (CDE).

CDE believes that California's educational community can benefit from the assignment (at the state level) of local or national experts who can assist in the development of statewide programs and/or policies. Selected candidates for the Visiting Educator Program may be educators who have developed outstanding local programs, subject matter specialists who can provide expertise in focused areas, or school business specialists who can provide expertise in resolving problems facing school administration today.

Visiting Education Program participants are employees of qualifying governmental jurisdictions (e.g. local school districts, county offices of education, public and private universities) who work for the CDE while on loan from their current employers. In exchange, the CDE reimburses the participants' employers for costs such as salaries, benefits, and related expenses.

All professional education and managerial positions in the CDE are potential Visiting Educator opportunities. Information about current opportunities is available at Ed Join.org External link opens in new window or tab. . Questions about this program can be addressed to:
